Not a full backup actually
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin is actually misguide users. If I move the hosting than it should export all my current data including images and also all settings (all options) so it should setup all things on import.

But currently it's exporting only content of post types only.

What I expect is that the export and import process will actually clone my existing site to new site.

Usually works
By , for WP 3.8.1

Usually works but sometimes doesn't upload images. Would have given it 3 stars but this plugin seems unnecessary for a plugin as it should be in the wordpress core

Fails importing attachments due timeout
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin clearly has not been deisgned to be timeout tolerant.

Therefore, if you have bought a theme from themeforest.net or the like, and want to import sample content, most of the times it won't terminate importing items due to timeout.

Then you have the double trouble of cleaning up and solving the timeout problem.

Being this a crucial plugin, this plugin should be extended with a timeout-tolerant logic.
